Alocasia Portadora does best in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves. If you want to keep it in a window, an east or west facing window would be best with a shear curtain so that the sunlight is filtered. Rotate this plant to ensure even growth.
Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Do not over water this plant. This plant prefers high humidity. Keep it in a bathroom or increase the humidity in the room. The soil should be a rich, well-drained soil.
This plant does not tolerate temperature changes. Keep the temperature consistent for the best results.
Use a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season, March-September. Do not feed in the winter.
